Falls afoul of tonal inconsistencies which can be especially detrimental in a story with its roots so deeply embedded in an abhorrent historical episode.
If you liked "Zombieland," you’ll probably like "Zombieland: Double Tap," just not as much.
Can’t make up its mind whether it wants to be a popcorn thriller or something with an existential bent, and isn't fully satisfying as either.
Combining the two movies, there’s a clear beginning and ending, and if the latter isn’t as strong or promising as the former, at least the entire story is told.
Although competently made and appealing in an exaggerated soap opera-tinged fashion, it fails to make a strong case for its raison d’être.
Although it suffers from an ungainly structure and uneven pacing, the production as a whole is engaging and uplifting.
Feels drawn-out, like a film school short that has been stretched beyond its natural length.
An engaging batch of campfire stories told from a fresh perspective, and that’s worth something in the stale world of PG-13 horror.
Johnson, Statham, and Kirby are tremendous together and (bloated running time aside) things are sufficiently loud and flashy to attract a large audience.
The film’s first half is promising but it is let down by the rushed ending and confusing changes in character motivations.
